If you have aptitudes that are valuable today, it does not imply that they were valuable 100 years ago or that they will be valuable in 100 years. Further, just because they are valuable where you live does not mean that they are valuable elsewhere. You exist at the serendipitous intersection of geography, time, and talent. Though you may have worked hard to further develop certain talents, where you are now is largely a happy accident for which you should be gracious, but not proud. Have some empathy for those who are not so lucky.
